Cantu + Luster's New Products!

As you know, I was one of the Beauty Influencers for Dollar General's 3rd Annual A Day of Beauty. Before the event, I along with the other influencers had the opportunity to visit the booth's and chat with the brand reps and ask questions about their new products! I want to share a few of the products that I am most excited to try:

The Cantu Refesh Dry Co-Wash is made with apple cider vinegar, tea tree oil, and Shea butter. This will be my first time trying a dry co-wash, but for the days I am on the go this seems like a great option. The product is supposed to "bring your look back to life" all while giving your hair the moisture it needs minus the residue!

Oh, and I MUST share this men's line product from Cantu! I picked up the Cantu Shea Butter Beard Oil for Si. He is going to try it out and we will do a video and review on our joint brand, Our Elevated Journey!

Another product I am excited to try is the Luster's Pink She butter Coconut Oil Leave in Conditioner. I already use the regular shampoo and conditioner from the Luster's Pink line, and I love it because it leaves my hair feeling so soft after I wash it! Even thought this will be my first time trying their silkening leave in conditioner, I do have high expectations and will be sure to check back in over the next few weeks to let you know my thoughts on it and the Cantu Dry Co-Wash!

{RECAP + GIVEAWAY} Dollar General A Day of Beauty

The 3rd Annual Dollar General A Day of Beauty was nothing short of amazing! First, let me start by mentioning that the event was held in a much larger space than the previous two years and it was still full! The line was so long, that I could not even see the end of it. This year's event theme was Beauty from the Inside Out! and seeing all shades of people and hair types attend the event was truly a beautiful sight!

Once the doors opened and everyone rushed in, they were able visit the beauty booths and not only get products to fill their bags but also see demonstrations, listen to Q&As, and receive beauty applications. I loved all of the booths, but I must share my faves and let you know why they stood out. Up first, the Pantene and Olay booth was set up so beautifully. They had a white faux fur rug laid out on the ground with black and gold accent pieces. Chukie Amos who is a celebrity stylist was doing live demonstrations using the Pantene Gold Series - and was SUH-LAYING every single style! Felicia of This That Beauty hosted the Q&A for Olay which highlighted the importance of wearing sunscreen.

At Broadway's booth, guests could get lash or press on nails application. The lashes ranged from natural/everyday to fun and flirty. It seemed as if the ladies really loved this booth because the line was never short!

I have always loved Luster's Pink Shampoo & Conditioner so I was very happy to get some new products to try from their hair care line. Their photo booth was so much fun and was filled with a lot of props. S Curl is also under the Luster's brand and their section of the booth featured live demos of products and even hair cuts!

With the theme of Beauty from the Inside Out, it's only right that several people took the main stage who shared their stories, encouragement, and inspiration - these individuals included Kim Field, panelists, and soul singer Vivian Green - who rocked the house!!

As one of the Beauty Influencers for the event, I am grateful to have received quite a bit of product. So as a thank you to my followers for all of the continued support, I am having an Instagram Giveaway!! To enter, click the image below and it will take you to the post!!

If you didn't attend this year's event, you truly missed out. Luckily, you now know that you MUST ATTEND next year!!

Monday Motivation: Get Uncomfortable

Don’t be afraid to dream big…results only happen when you get out of your comfort zone! I am sure you have heard this plenty of times, but my question to you is, Why are you STILL in your comfort zone when you know that you must leave it in order to reach your goals! Just as I am asking you this, I am asking myself the same question!

I challenge you to do at least one thing this week that you are afraid of, whether it’s applying for a job, contacting a brand, or submitting a piece of work to an editor! DO IT!
